Good morning Raven. You did good yesterday and yes you can do it again today. It is going to get easier to get into your routine after a few days under your belt. Hang in there. Have a great weekend.

2eggsBeans1bread1cSoup, popcorn, applesauce, popcorn, orange, yogurt, stomach is hurting...2hrs later...better now. Coworkers ordered Chinese. I don't care. Bananna, salad, big pickle, 2tomatoes, chickenbreast, more popcorn, apple, (HonkyTonk)ham&cheese sandwich w/o top bun, 2hotdogs no bun, CottageCheesePineapple, applesauce. Over 1/2 gallon h2o. I feel like this is a pretty good day for me. HaveaHealthyDay !

Destiny65 on 09/26/2014:
Great choices while others ate Chinese food! Love the pic!

museumgirl on 09/26/2014:
Great job on avoiding the chinese food - I swell up like a dirigible if I eat it! If I ever feel deprived when others are eating something I can't/don't want to eat, I just think of all the times I HAVE eaten it, and say to myself, you aren't really missing anything. Usually, it works....

puddles on 09/26/2014:
Good morning Raven - I would agree that it is a good day for you. Not having the buns is great. You are doing a great job and congrats on the Chinese food. Wishing you another great day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 09/26/2014:
it would probably be great as a pizza crust! I didn't use much water, so really, it was way harder than an average pancake for sure.

2eggsBeans1bread1cSoup, popcorn, yogurt, 2tomatoes, applesauce, salad, bananna, popcorn, yogurt, 1/2 apple, soup, rice beans. 1/2 gal. water, pb sandwich, about 8 tortilla chips, rice, beans. Pineapple, popcorn, w I thought today was going to be much better. My plan was to just eat the pb sandich and soup at home, But I felt compelled to order something at the Mexican restaurant. But I didn't eat all of it. I'll try to be better next time. Read an article on inflammation of blood vessels. It got me thinking about cutting sugar and flour. Thanks for all your comments, guys. I wish I could comment more on everyone's posts. I'll probably improveon that too. HaveaHealthyDay.

Thanks, Fran !

museumgirl on 09/25/2014:
I follow the anti-inflammatory diet, and I am really happy with it. There are a lot of things I "can't" or choose not to eat right now, but that actually makes it easier for me. I'm kind of an all-or-none person, lol. If you're interested, look at Dr. Weil's food pyramid, it's an easy visual, which I like. Have a good day!

OhioRaven on 09/25/2014:
Ok, I'll check it out.

OhioRaven on 09/25/2014:

Starting over, Again, Today. The long weekend is over, no more HonkyTonks, Lodges, Reunions, PigRoast. Brought 1/2 gallon jug of water with me to work, as well as banannas, baked chickenbreast, YogurtNstuff. Gonna try to get back to my "Routine". Weigh in on Mondays. I just did not think it was appropriate for me to post all the disgusting stuff I've been polluting myself with. I gotta try. This unhealthy sh!t is not gonna fix itself. Gotta man-up. Rant over.

RESET is always a good thing! It means you're still here and will make progress! Have a good day!

puddles on 09/24/2014:
Good Morning Raven - Glad to see your re-commitment to your healthy living routine. I am really proud of you. You definitely own up to everything when you mess up and that is a good sign. Looking forward to having you back. Wishing you all the best on this new journey of yours. Have a great day.

You're close to the groove if not already there--good going!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 09/24/2014:
HEY OHIO MY MAN! lol...do not have any regrets for posting all you were / are eating. we will not judge you for it...many of us have done it too after all. Try to add more vegetables (I prefer cooked ones - roasted) to the mix and that should satisfy you more...not sure if you cook a lot...I don't do it much - but my mom used to roast all kinds of things...asparagus / Brussels / etc...even potatoes...she'd slice potatoes but most other things were whole and she'd coat in olive oil and put I think on a baking sheet with aluminum foil for easy cleaning. she added salt and pepper and darn those buggers are tasty!

I takes time for change. I'm still getting used to no coffee. :( no caffeine is something to get used to when at work!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 09/24/2014:
that's a funny question you asked another DDer..."you ate pajamas?"

Hang in there Raven. Maybe you should tell your co-workers that even though you appreciate their kindness you have decided to start eating healthier again. I am sure they would understand unless they want to work against you. Wishing you a good day even though it did not start on the right foot. I will be praying for you today.

Lately you eat more fast food? Is it bc you are performing or at the bar? Vegetables can sometimes cause gas and bloating more than other foods but the leafy types - raw and cooked ones like cabbage with a little oil of course! - can fill u up and u can still eat the other foods but less of them....

Yeah looks Iike I will be getting lots of free massage and Accupuncture this fall :)

Good afternoon Raven. Your are doing good. You food look pretty good for yesterday. Hope you have another great day.

Sorry about not having a good relationship with your brother.

biscottibody59 on 09/19/2014:
Glad you mentioned his passing anyway--for your sake!

At the end of the day all you can do is to take good care of yourself--not easy all the time--but keep it in mind. Always.

ps a chili dog sounds really good:-)

Good morning Raven - You are doing good considering all the temptations around and having co-workers that don't need of have to be careful with their food. Just keep doing what you are doing. Your doing great. Have a great day.

OhioRaven on 09/18/2014:
Sorry, Puddy. It's too late. The wheels are falling off.

Hi Raven maybe the nuts on the wheels are loose. Its never too late. You don't have to be perfect.
